Development history

Guiping has a long history. In Dawan Niugukeng, Baishaluo Cluster Rock, Xiaban Kaolin and Shibeiling, Neolithic Beiqiu Cave and Paleolithic Stone Fighting Workshop sites have been found, indicating that Guiping was the place where human beings lived at least 10,000 years ago.

Guiping was the land of Jing and Yang (prefecture) in Xia, Shang and Zhou dynasties, and the land of Xiou Baiyue in Spring and Autumn and Warring States Periods.


After Pingding Lingnan in 214 B.C., Qin Shihuang led 12 counties in Guilin with its location in Guilin, Nanhai and Xiangxian.

geographical environment

Guiping Xishan is famous for its "Shiqi, Shuxiu, Tea Fragrance and Spring Gan". Peaks and mountains, tens or even more than a hundred cubic meters of mega-stones stacked, there are strange rocks rugged, winding stone paths. The stone trees are towering, the green shade ramps, and the natural landscape is magnificent. Xishan Tea is well-known and delicious, and is sold far to all parts of the world.

Every summer, there are bamboo cans beside Ruquan for pedestrians to drink water, scoop a tube of spring water and sip slowly. It is a great pleasure, and it is praised as one of the best in Xishan.

Cradle of milk spring

To the west of Guiping is a part of Longshan Mountains in central Guangxi, known as the cradle of Ruquan. Because of the Mesozoic granite in this area, groundwater is deposited in the physical cracks of rock mass and accumulates water to form springs. This kind of spring water has high molecular density, high surface tension, and contains a special physical phenomenon. It is said that only Hurun Spring in Hangzhou can be comparable to it. Someone has made a performance: until 113 coins were put in, the water bulged like bread at the mouth of the cup, but it did not spill, breaking the rule of "full rule overflow". People who see this special physical phenomenon are all exclaiming. Local people are even more proud. Guiping has a tea-picking tune, which praises Ruquan: "Huayishi, Huayishi, Ruquan water, Xishan tea. This words do not speak to the layman, the layman listened to want to become a monk. "

natural resources

water dripping from stalactites

Under the boulder is the word "Ruquan", written by the ancients. Spring is 1 meter deep, winter is not dry, summer is not overflowing. It is said that during the Buddha's retreat, with the help of the shepherdess, he drank the spring water of the Ruquan and recovered a little bit. He meditated under the ancient banyan tree for seven days and seven nights before becoming a Buddha. According to the Records of Xunzhou Government, Ruquan is as clear as Longjing in Hangzhou, but it's beautiful. Sometimes juice sprays out, white as milk, so it is called Ruquan. "Modern scientific verification confirms that this phenomenon is radon gas institute. When radon gas is ejected with spring water, it is very fast and milky white appears.

Xishan scenic spot has a long history, is the most complete Buddhist holy place preserved in Guangxi, is one of the thirteenth largest Buddhist holy places in the country. Scholars and scholars of all dynasties left over more than 4000 poems in appreciation of Xishan.

Lin Xiu

The forest in Xishan is sea-like, lush and lush, with 98% coverage of trees, more than 130,000 trees and 17,000 cubic meters of timber. The main tree species are pine, banyan, camphor and fish tail sunflower, known as the "four families" of the Xishan jungle. There are more than 100,000 pine trees all over the mountains, the most notable of which is the giant pine of Longli, which is "like a flying dragon on the branches of iron bars, and wearing a royal robe with Qi You Xiong". There are more than 1500 ancient trees over one hundred years old, which fully reflects the characteristics of "many, ancient, big, stubborn, strange, precious and beautiful" trees in Xishan. On the right side of Xishi Temple, there are several rare acacia trees in Guangxi, which are the pillars of the building. In the Journal of Travel published in 1943, it was introduced that the shady west mountain covered the sky, "very much like the Yunqi Bamboo Trail in Hangzhou, and also like the flying peak road of Lingyin Temple, but there are many kinds of trees, strange gestures, and much better than Lingyin".

Shi Qi

The rocks in Xishan Mountain belong to biotite granite, which was formed in the early Mesozoic about 180 million years ago. They have the characteristics of "rudeness and abruptness". They have various forms and are good at each other. There are checkerboard stones with shapes like stone tables, flying stones from unknown sources, some like mountains pulled up flat, some like tigers crouching on the roadside; officials'hidden caves are formed by three huge stones supporting each other, while Yao Wengyan is a natural cave formed in a mountain-like boulder, with a sudden depression on one side. As Master Juzan said in his article "The West Hill of Guiping", it is no exaggeration that "even the stones of the West Hill are more delicious than the flying peaks of the West Lake of Hangzhou, which seem to be arranged in a strange and friendly way".

Spring sweet

Ruquan, located on the left side of Longhua Temple, is one of the most famous springs in Xishan. This is an ancient spring with a width of about 1 metre and a depth of about 1 metre. Winter is endless and summer is not overflowing. Keep a constant water level and water temperature of 22-22 degrees Celsius all year round. "Xunzhou Prefecture annals" said, "this spring is as clear as the Longjing of Hangzhou, and sweet, sometimes juice gushing out, white as milk, so it is called Ruquan". Ruquan is the most suitable natural soft water for drinking because of its clear water quality and low impurities. Spring water contains a lot of natural oxygen, which can evaporate the impurities in tea and wine; the surface tension of spring water is great, and 125 pennies are continuously poured into a full cup of spring water, whose surface protrudes like half wheat bags without water overflowing; when gushing, there is a sudden sound, just like a pleasant silk string, enjoying the reputation of "Ruquan Qinyun".

Tea fragrance

Main attractions

New Mountain Gate

Guiping Xishan New Mountain Gate is elegant, unique, connected with mountains, and famous, competing with each other. The name of Xinshan Gate is Nantian Yilang, inscribed by Meng Hanliang, a famous contemporary calligrapher from Guiping. The couplets on both sides are 90-word long couplets with profound meaning and meaningful words. They are the cooperation of Confucius Wenxuan and Zou Lu in the Republic of China. In the early 1920s, Sun Yat-sen went to Yong from Guangdong to give a speech. He passed through Guiping and went up to Xishan Mountain. At the banquet, Confucius Wenxuan made a couplet: "Cangwu is to the east, Yongning is to the south, Guilin is to the north, but here lies the front plain, the rear steep ridges, left Guizhou is to the right, intersecting the 24 rivers, where the spirit is concentrated and the talent is to set up dangers." He also said that if people can not answer the couplet, they should not have a banquet. Zou Lululuo, Sun Yat-sen's secretary, after thinking, calmly responded to the following couplet: "wash stone with an anvil, Ruquan with a pavilion, officials with holes hidden, the best place is called old tree, Liu Ji Banqing, Wenge Ciyan, hiding 18 Luohan, traveling to the top, eye low tower foot Lingyun." The above couplet writes about the shape of Xishan, and the next couplet writes about the specific scenic spots of Xishan.

Linghu Lake

Go straight into the mountain gate, about half a mile, there is a beautiful artificial lake on the right. This is the Xishan Reservoir built in 1954, also known as Linghu Lake. The green waves ripple on the lake, and the surrounding peaks are surrounded by green rings. The scenery of the lake is brilliant, which adds infinite scenery to the West Mountain. Walk across the Jiuquqiao to Huxin Island. The island is shaded by trees, and the green boat floats in the distance. On the west side of the lake, there are swimming pools. In midsummer, tourists enjoy themselves either on the lake or on the lake. Tired of playing, you can also have some tea at Linghu Teahouse by the lake and have a rest.

Dangerous peak Chaoyang

The precipice in front of Guanyin Rock is peculiar. A Pavilion stands on the precipice, facing the east. Photo enthusiasts like to take pictures of the sunrise in Xishan, so it is called Chaoyang Pavilion. If you look over the fence, the scenery is magnificent and magnificent, which seems to be better than Longhua Temple. This is the "Dangerous Peak Chaoyang" in the new scenery of Xishan Mountain.

Ding Quan, Hongqiao

From "step by step" to climb up, about 500 meters, you can see between the eight-zigzag cliff and the dangerous road, a bridge flying frame, like a rainbow, also known as the rainbow bridge. Boarding the bridge. Looking down the hill, I feel like I'm in the clouds. There are trickling streams flowing from the cliff wall beside the bridge, which converge into a clear spring, which is actually the same source as Ruquan.

Long gorge Fairies

About 100 meters above Hongqiao. The gorge is 40 meters long, with high cliffs on both sides and a small road in the middle, which can only be passed by one person. In the gorge, when you look up, you can only see a line of blue sky, so it is also called "a line of sky". According to folklore, people with destiny can often meet gods here. On the stone wall at the entrance of the south end of the Changxia Gorge, there are three big characters inscribed by Master Kuan Neng, "Shenxian Gorge". Originally, Huixian Gorge is also called Shenxian Gorge.

Dragon Pavilion Day

Standing on the cliff cliff under Huixian Gorge, it is a two-story hexagonal pavilion. The ridge of the eaves is decorated with six dragons. They are eager to fly with extraordinary momentum. Here is the highest place of Xishan Scenic Spot, where you can enjoy the new scenery of "Longting View of the Sun". At the end of the river, the river is first reckless and chaotic, gradually turning from dark to bright, showing brilliant sunshine; in an instant, the sun rises like fire, spraying out thin, rising slowly; and then Jinguangdao Wandao, reflecting Xun, Qian and Yu rivers. The earth wakes up from its sleep, the countryside is full of vitality and weather.

Plank road hung Bi

From the Longting Pavilion slowly down the mountain, to take a section of about 300 meters long by the mountain trestle road. The trestle road is winding down the cliff wall, paving stone grade with cement, about 1 metre wide, with side railings. Because of the high terrain, visitors walking on it will have a sense of adventure without fear of danger. Looking from the trestle road, the three rivers are vast and the earth is vast. It is a different kind of sight.

Song Hai Tao

After walking along the trestle road and crossing the dense jungle, "Listen to Songxuan". Here the pine forest is like the sea, the mountain wind blows, making waves, like the sand on the flat ground, like the rain at night in the valley, like the sea to forgive the tide, like the roar of the deep mountain tiger... Previous poems portrayed this scene: "A couch lying on a high mountain, familiar with the stories of tigers, looking up at the thousands of trees shaking, the wind stirred up the tide."

Lixi waterfall

From listening to Songxuan to the north along the stone level and down about 50 or 60 meters, then to Lianxi, the old catfish stream. Because Zhou Dunyi, a Neo-Confucianist of the Northern Song Dynasty, had come to Guiping to give lectures and often traveled to the Western Hills. Later generations named the stream by his nickname. Lianxi has flowing water for many years, and the stream has fallen along the mountain. If the spring is steep and long after the rain, the silver currents are flying down, and the distant vision is like white practice hanging high, and like the green sea rising smoke.
